    It's crazy how much time difference there is with people getting offers.

    My app has been in the department since September 7th, but soooo many people seem to have offers already. It's just not fair.
    whats the plans for your GAP YAH

    Thank you and good luck with your application
    I'm a mature applicant (24) and did an Access to HE Diploma last year. Passed Access with clear Distinctions but my grades from school were BCD at AS (2003) and 4As, 2Bs, 4Cs, 1D at GCSE (2002), although I'm not sure how heavily their decision will have been weighted on those

    Is Durham your first choice?
    Thanks, nice one on the HE Diploma. Yes Durham will be my first choice I think, for one reason or another I've yet to send application off yet :rolleyes: but that'll be done within next few days so hopefully will see you there What college are you at?

    Yep, I'm sure everyone grows to love their college and get quite protective of it! I've not visited Durham though and I chose my college at the very last minute seeing as I submitted my UCAS, then decided I did like Durham lots more than Nottingham and I would regret not applying, and switched to Durham with about 1 day to spare!

    ^^ Thank you! Congrats on your offer too although can't say I'm surprised with your grades!
    Thank you! I feel lucky to have been given one.
    To which college did you end up applying?
    I chose *all* of my UCAS choices in around 24 hours, out of sheer panic, ha! Probably for the best though, as I am that type of person who weighs up the pros and cons of a decisions endlessly, much to the annoyance of my mother.

    :confused:

    aw, that sounds fantastic!

    in my AH maths class we have 'cake tuesday' and one day, this guy made a cake that had written on it ' square root of negative 1 over square root of 64 ' (but not in words obviously!) and it had us all in stitches for aaages!

    edit: it simplifies to ' i over 8 ' (i overate!) for those non-maths types
    Ooh awesome! We have cake Friday because we have a single period maths lesson on Friday and nobody does any work :p:

    That is so cool! That is one cool guy! I would do it for our maths class too but I don't think anyone would understand!

    Is it your first choice?
    I ended up going for Castle purely because I love the idea of formals and balls and beautiful architecture

    Lol, my friend drew up a table of pros and cons for all 14 universities she was considering!

    Originally it was my 5th choice, but now it's 3rd/4th, I'd say!
    Castle? I am sorry, but we can no longer be friends... (joking )
    Where do you most want to go? I am sure with your grades though, you'll encounter no problems!

    Hello! I sort of have an offer for philsophy - its for combined english lit and philosophy, though to be honest the philosophy bit is my favourite! Congratulations on your offer! I love Durham its definately my firm choice!
    What college have you applied to? Its good to see someone else applying for philosophy, I don't think anyone's mentioned it so far!
    Rose
    Yayyy hello half philosophy person!! :P Yeah durham's awesome, it's probably going to be my firm as well and congrats on your offer too!!
    I applied to Chad's, I haven't got confirmation from them yet though, although my AES says that a decision has been made :O Which college have you applied to?

    Yeah, my AES has said 'with the department' for just over 2 months now... but if everyone else's is like that too then there's still hope I guess

    Curiously, I thought I was going to take it much worse. I'm oddly relieved.
    Good luck all.
